ICI Homes was recognized at the 2019 Tampa Bay Parade of Homes with two prestigious awards for its Serena model home in Asturia, a master-planned community in Odessa.
The Serena received a Silver Award in the very competitive, $500,000 to $549,000 price category, and also the exclusive “Best In Class” award for Merchandising, in recognition of the model’s superior features and interior design.
ICI Homes also received the Grand Award for homes in the $1 million to $1.2 million class for its Shenandoah model at FishHawk Ranch in south Hillsborough County. This is the third year that the Shenandoah received top honors in the Parade of Homes competition.
“It is truly an honor to once again be recognized by Parade judges for our innovative floor plans and excellence in design,” said Leah Turner, sales manager for ICI Homes. “As we move into Asturia’s newest phase, we are especially proud that our Serena model home received awards for both its floor plan and the interior design.”
More Homes In Asturia
ICI Homes is one of the premier builders in Asturia, a master-planned community of just 550 homes along the State Road 54 corridor in Odessa. Buyers can choose from over a dozen distinctive floor plans, all which can be customized to meet a family’s unique needs to build their dream home.
ICI Homes, which has been building in Asturia for the past two years, is now selling in the community’s newest phase with 38 new home sites, many of which back up to conservation or water.
“A lot of families have been waiting for Phase III to open in Asturia, because they love our pristine homesites, as well as our affordable floor plans that begin in the low $300s,” said Turner.
Families of all ages and sizes chose Asturia because of its convenient location just minutes from the Suncoast Parkway, its unique trails system that winds through wetlands, parks and neighborhoods, and its award-winning Amenity Center that includes a zero-entry pool, contemporary community center and state-of-the-art fitness center.
“We’re seeing lots of buyers who appreciate Asturia’s more intimate size, especially when compared to nearby communities where thousands of home are being built,” said Turner.
The builder’s new model home, the Costa Mesa, will open later this spring as a beautifully furnished model.
This one-story home is 2,565 square feet with four bedrooms and three baths. Its open floor plan brings together the gathering room, gourmet kitchen and dining room in one expansive space that incorporate lots of windows to bring in natural light and sunlight.
In addition to its Phase III lots, ICI Homes also has a few homesites remaining in the Asturia’s almost-completed second phase, including three inventory homes and its award-winning Serena model.
Final Homes In Bexley
If you’re looking for a new home in Land O’ Lakes, this is the last chance to buy an ICI Home in Bexley, an award-winning development by Newland that is located just east of Asturia next to the Suncoast Parkway.
Bexley offers thousands of acres of preserved wetlands, parks and playgrounds, and miles of walking and bike trails. Other amenities include a clubhouse, pools, fitness center, bike shop and café.
ICI Homes is building its final three homes in Bexley, all on large, 70-foot lots. A Costa Mesa quick move-in home is currently being built, and the slightly smaller Egret VII will soon be under construction. Both homes have very open plans with lots of windows and natural lighting.
ICI Homes, one of Florida’s most acclaimed builders, builds new homes in desirable master-planned communities that offer beautiful home sites, excellent schools and expansive amenities that promote an active lifestyle.
